Snap Cube Number Mats

To prepare the snap cube number mats: Simply print and laminate. If you don’t want to laminate, I suggest putting the mats into some dry erase pockets so that the kids can use them many times and you don’t have to worry about printing extra copies.

To use the snap cube number mats: Have your kids create the number on each mat using their snap cubes. This is a great problem solving opportunity as the kids learn how to create corners and shape each number. It can be a little challenging at first, but they usually get the hang of it pretty quick.

One thing we’ve done is provide a lot of free time to play with the snap cubes, so that the kids can learn how to create different shapes and navigate corners with the cubes since they can only be inserted in one direction.

Along with the snap cubes, each mat provides space to practice writing the number and counting each number with individual blocks and ten-frames.

Giving the kids many ways to interact with the numbers helps them make concrete connections with the numerals.
